The rug, originating from India, belongs to the contemporary style profile and falls under the unique aesthetic category of "Illusion." It provides a striking visual experience with an enchanting turquoise background underlining a primary color palette predominantly showcasing different shades of teal.

This rug, measuring 9' X 12'2", is a recent creation, further cementing its identity as a modern piece, a clear shift from traditional design norms. The ingenuity of the design is primarily attributed to Teddy Sumner, of Michaelian & Kohlberg, who initiated this concept with a product he named "Grass."

The design brings a tonal illusion emulating small blades of grass under different lighting scenarios. The use of one or two tones, dyed with natural dye stuffs, allows for multiple shadings within the same color - a phenomenon known as abrash. This design approach conjures soothing images of fade-away horizons and undulating rows of grain, thus living up to the rug's name, "Illusion."

Produced predominantly in the ancient city of Agra, India, the manufacturing process highlights the distinction between single and two-ply yarns and specifics in weaving techniques. The asymmetrical Persian knot, a distinguishing feature of this rug, exhibits its unique craftsmanship.

The choice of materials ensures durability and comfort. Made of wool on cotton, the rug achieves a soft all-wool pile that is as comfortable to walk on as it is appealing to the eye. The rug is designed and made for lasting durability while maintaining its visual allure.

In the rich tapestry of Indian carpet weaving, the rug classifies under the category of Agra rugs, a testament to its quality and design exceptionalism. As an Illusion rug, this piece perfectly encapsulates the fine tradition, merging it with contemporary aesthetics. In doing so, the rug not only enhances the visual appeal of your living space, but brings a sense of groundedness and history to wherever it is placed.
